Months of entry
This programme offers students an introduction to the study of the ways in which writing in English has shaped or mediated political identities in England, Scotland and Ireland. It examines the role of literature in the formation of political identities during the emergence of 'modern' political, social and cultural institutions in the period between 1688 and 1900: within the context of the secularisation of knowledge, the rise to dominance of capitalist economic and legal systems, and an impersonal state apparatus.
